Butler Contest
MAY PLAY AT ST. LOUIS

For the first time in the history of
either university, Michigan and Iowa
will meet in a dual track meet at
Iowa City this afternoon. The only
places these schools have ever match-
ed track teams before were at the an-
nual Conference championship meets
.and at opei track and field carnivals
throughout the section.
Although Iowa woh the indoor Con-
ference meet last February, at Evan-
ston, the Wolverine team is given the
edge on their rivals. For outdoors,
the addition of several field events
gives Michigan a more potential scor-
ing team, as she poss'esses men in
these events that are capabie of bet-
ter performances than Old Gold men 1
with the possible exception of the shot:
put, ini which Dauber, the Iowa lead-
er, can heave further than either
Doyle or Munz, the Maize and Blue
entries.
In the Conference meet Dauber de-
feated Munz, and although he has not
competed against Doyle this year, the
latter can only be classed as the sec-'
ond best shot putter on the squad.
In the meet today Iowa will be de-
pendent on several men, such as Cu-
hel, Roberts, Hunn, Beatty, Dauber
and others, who are good in several
events. Michigan on the other hand
has men in each event that are good
performers and will not be forced to
double up her men to insure a high
scoring team. Cuhel will probably
run in both hurdle races as well as
the 440 yard dash, although he may
be kept out of one of the barrier races
in order that he will be fresh for the
quarter mile.
Roberts, who finished in fourth
place at the Conference meet, being
beaten out by Feinsinger will prob-
ably be the other Iowa entry in the I
440, and this event should prove to be.
a close battle for first honors. If the
tarck is fast, the winner will undoubt-
edly cover the distance in better than
50 second-
Beatty, Taxman, Everigham and
Moody, are the Iowa entries in the
100, while in the 220 Coach G. T.
Breshnahan will use Roberts, Ever-
ingham, Joy, Pratt and Fowell. The
440 yard dash will see Roberts, Cuhel,
Swenson, Phelps and Grosonik in ac-
tion, and in the half mile Sorenson,
Miller, Swenson, Kohl and Elliot will
run.
In the mile, Hunn, Elliot, Butter-
field, Van Ness and March will com-
pete, and in the two mile, Hun n,
Speers, Marchi and Bergstrom will
see "action. Cuhel, Beatty, Phelps and
Boice are the Iowa entries in both
the low and high hurdles, while Mann,
Thomas, Swenson and Glidden are en-
tered in the high jump.
Competing against the Michigan
broad junipers will be Everingham,
Belding, Rankin, Smith and Bale,
while in the pole vault Boyles, Ml-
len, Oransky and Tysor are entered.
Captain Dauber, Nelson Lapp, Mau,
Morrison and Marquis will compete in
the shot put, the discus throw, and
with the exception of Dauber, in the
hammer. The javelin entries are Rice,
Dyke, Berne, Von Hoene, Voltmer, and
Brose.
These entries will probably be cut
down before the actual meet, but
these are all the men that the Iowa
mentor has entered temporarily. Half
of these men have won points for the
Hawkeyes in dual meets, and 21 of
them have won letters in past years,
or have already earned their "I" this
seaso n.

(By Asoctated Press)
NEW YORK, April 30-Two import-
ant obstacles barring the way to a
heavyweight championship fight here
this summer were removed today'
when 'the state athletic commission
ruled Jack Dempsey eligible and
granted a license to Tex Rickard to
promote boxing exhibitions at Yan-
kee stadium. This action virtually
assures a title' fight between Demp-
sey and either Harry Wills or GeneI
Tunney at the American league park
some time around Sept. 16.
At the same time tihe board de- i
dared that Tex Rickard was within
his rights in obtaining an action on
the services of the heavyweight box-,
er but it reiterated that it considered
Harry Wills the outstanding challieng-
er. "The promoter would not reveal
today whether he intended to proceed
with his original intention of match-
ing Tunney with the champion or
shifting to Wills, in accordance with
the commission's wishes, but he noti-
fied the board he would appear within
30 days and announce his plans for a
title match.
The question of Dempsey's eligibil-
ity came up when Rickard being
questioned 'concerning his journey tol
Texas to sign Dempsey to a contract.
Chairman Farley said he was of the
opinion that Dempsey was ineligible
for failures to sign articles of agree-
ment for a match with Wills and post
a required $2,500 forfeit.
CCommissioners George Brower and1l
William Muldoon, however, over-ruled
Chairman Farley in voting that Demp-
sey's action of July 17, 1925, in com-
ing before the board and verbally
agreeing to meet Wills automatically
lifted the bars against him and since.
that day he has been eligible. Chair-
man Farley was not present at that
meeting. He yielded today to the ma-
jority decision.
Rickard also applied for a renewal
of his license at Madison Square Gar-
den which was granted.
'Gwinn Henry, football coach at the
University of Missouri, has been as-
signed to the position of head track
coach.

Michigan's tennis tean departed
at 9 o'clock last night for B ,niingon
where they will open their weck-end
invasion of the Hoosier state against
Indiana today. They will journey to
Indianapolis to meet the Butler col-
lege tennis team Monday. If plans
materialize, the Wolverines will ex-
tend their tour another day to play
Washington university Tuesday in St.
Louis. !
Although no definite word has been
received from the Indiana athletic of-
ficials, it is probable that the Hoos-
iers will start the same men that they
used against Franklin last Saturday,I
and who split the Indiana State Nor-
mal a week ago Wednesday in six
mat ches.
Rothrock and Taylor will play in
the first two positions and also as
number one doubles team. These two
men are good players although they
ran against tough opposition, losing
in both singles and doubles against the
Normal school. The other three men
to play singles are Leser, Sponsler, of
basketball fame, and Bixler and will
work in the order named. The other
Hoosier doubles team is undecided and
will likely be either Sponsler and
Johnson or Bixler and Johnson, with
the former holding the edge.
Michigan will present the same five
man front which has swept through
Michigan State .and Detroit university
without losing a match in their first
two tests of the year. As- before,
CaptainKrickbaum and Crane will
play in the first two poistions and
Irwin Olian in the fifth place. Vose
and Stephens will play as number
three and number four, the order be-
ing determined by the type of game
played by the Indiana men in these
two positions. Vose is rated best
against soft strokers, while Stephens
does his best against a hard driving
game.
Matches with Washington universi-
ty are tentative and nothing could be
learned definitely about them last
night.
The Stanford baseball nine will sail
for Japan June S.

Australian After
Nurmi's Laurels
VANCOUVER, B. C., April 30.-Ran-
dolph Rose, champion miler of Aus-
tralia, has completed the first leg of
his journey which will take him more
than half way around the world in his
quest of the race with Paavo NurmL
Arriving last night at New Zealand
on the Acrandi, Rose immediately
made plans t bstart tonight on the
second lap, which will take him to
New York. He will board a steamer I
there on May 15, for Europe, where he I
will compete in the English chamn-
pionships prior to invading the Con- I
tinent for a Nurmi race.
Rose, a native of Masterton, New
Zealand, is six feet, two inches tall,!
and weighs 175 pounds. He holds the
Australia record for the mile at 4:13
2-5 on a grass track, three seconds
slower than the world's record held
by Nurmi.

American distance runner, Lloyd Hahn
in four out of five races. He is ac-
companied on his 15,000 journey by
John W. McHollm, New Zealand's
champion 16 pound hammer thrower.

(By Associated Press)
ROME, April 30. - Mlle. Suzanne
Lenglen, French lawn tennis star Who
is visiting Italy, today denied that she
had any intention of going to Amnr-
ica.
When asked concerning the agree-
ment said to have been reached, call-
ing for her appearance in the Unied
States, she said:
"I haven't the slightest intention. of
going to America, or playing any
matches in America.
"This is merely another one- of the
canards launched by the so-cal).gd
sports writers in the United State,
who seem to take pleasure in invent-
ing all kinds of unpleasant and untrue
things about my cooking up mati:-
monial prospects and similar non-
sense every week. Why they do it
is a mystery to me."
Asked regarding the report that she
intended to go into the motion pic-
tures, she declared her features were
not suited for such work.

(Snooks) Dowd has finally made good
in baseball, this time with the Brook-
lyn Dodges. for whom Dowd. fills the
berth at the "keystone sack."
In his college days Dowd's speed

playing football at Lehigh college.
With the ball only a few yards from
his opponents' goal line Dowd scooped
up a fumble, but lie ran the wrong
way. On the way toward his own goal1
his teammates attempted to stop him,
but just at the line he swerved and re-
traced his. steps, and scored a touch-
down afiry close to 200 yards-of run-
ning. *
Dowd played for many minor league
clubs in the American association,
Sou ern, International, Eastern, and
Texas leagues besides a short term
with the Philadelphia Athletics.
